Campus Housing: I lived on campus for my first year at JMU. The process is very easy; you fill out forms online and list your building preferences in order. Later you are made aware of your placement. I received my second choice for dorm building and honestly I think it was better than my first choice. The building was air conditioned, cleaned daily by JMU staff, and offered a great way to meet new people and get used to the whole college setting. Rooms are average size and come with relatively new furniture. My dorm building happened to be right next to the center of campus which was great because of the proximity to dining options, class buildings, bus stops, and hangout places.

Athletics: At JMU there is the on campus gym known as UREC. This building was just renovated again and is amazing. There is everything you could possibly imagine included in a university gym and then more so. Pools, equipment, group exercise rooms, rock climbing rooms, and so much more. UREC is friendly for both athletes and first time gym goers. The quality of the building makes me want to go and exercise.

Overall Experience: JMU is one of the best choices I ever made. JMU has a lot of students, but the school still has that feeling of a close-knit, friendly family. I know that some of the people I've met here will stick with me for awhile. There are so many different ways to become involved; whether it's through clubs, greek life, sports, or other opportunities available in the community. The academics are top notch too, with professors who are interested in you and helping facilitate your success. The campus itself is beautiful and inviting, giving you a sneak peek of how awesome this university really is.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

JMU offers a strong community, with students displaying an overwhelming amount of pride. You'll find you will love this school simply because every other student carries that same love. This sense of spirit is infectious. Harrisonburg has been named the "friendly city" by students, faculty, parents, and townfolk, and it’s no surprise why. Each year offers unique experiences that keep you coming back for more. JMU might not be charmed with the best football team in college history, but with the overwhelming amount of pride and zeal displayed at each game, it seems the perfect team for a enthusiastic school.

One pitfall might be the lack of nearby attractions or activities to enjoy on a weekend night. This can result in a many people resorting to parties as their means of entertainment. While Harrisonburg is by no means urbanized, you'll find some of your best memories on the nights you spend with your peers. Whichever friend group you click into, you'll find a little piece of yourself on this campus.
